Looking for a list of paid forum posting jobs? You've come to the right place.
Paid forum posting is not the ideal writing job for every writer. In fact I can think of plenty of reasons why you might want to avoid this kind of writing job completely. The pay is low and you probably wouldn't give up your day job to do paid forum posting.
But if you've got time to spare or if you just love the community feel of forums, then why not get paid for what you're already doing? Some forums allow you to add a signature box, so you could even be promoting your own blog while you're getting paid...
For those who want to add a few extra dollars to their writing income each week with very little brain-power or effort required, paid forum posting can be a great way to bump up your income.
In an earlier post I wrote about the benefits of creating more than one type of writing income to build your freelance business and increase your total writing income.
You can see that post here: Create Multiple Freelance Incomes
If you're one of those people who doesn't have more than one writing income source, then perhaps paid forum posting might fill a few minutes of your week for a few extra dollars.
There are two types of paid forum posting.
The first is the professional, organized forum posting jobs where you are told what to post and on which forum. When the job is complete, that forum is replaced with another that requires boosting. You're being paid to help out those forum owners. This first option is just like a job. You're expected to complete the tasks given to you. You should get paid between 15 and 20 cents per post for your efforts.
The second type of paid forum posting is where you just post whatever you want. Two word answers are fine. Non-English speaking is fine. Do what you like at any time with no restrictions. Obviously because this second type of paid forum posting is unregulated, the pay is quite low (generally 1 - 5 cents per post) but you have no rules to follow. If you prefer to just chat and post at random, then try here: http://ravens-writing.blogspot.com/2009/01/freelance-writers-who-dont-want-to-be.html
If you'd rather work with a more regulated option with higher pay, then here's a list of some paid forum posting companies you might want to try.

Someone asked me to list a pay rate per post for each of these sites as well. Gee! It's not enough that I provided the links and information?
Okay. Let's just say most of the sites above pay between 15 and 20 cents per post. The only ones I can think of that pay below that rate are the two non-paying companies I've said to avoid completely anyway. They 'pay' 10 cents per post - when they pay their writers at all.
So if you're interested in paid forum posting, give some of the companies on this list a try and boost your income a little.
If you're not into the idea of paid forum posting, then ignore this post!
